An Intervention: Lẩu Nghệ Thuật (Art Hotpot)

Nha San Collective /

In a lot of Asian cultures, hotpot is considered a communal eating experience where people would alternately put a variation of ingredients into a heated steamboat placed at the center of the table and eat from it. It is a tradition of family members and friends gathering around the table to share stories with each other. Based on the idea of this comforting cuisine experience, our project is an attempt to intervene into a space of a different artistic landscape, as well as trying to weave a connection between art and cultural activities of Vietnamese in Czech Republic with the community of art practitioners here in order to generate an alternative space for dialogues and exchanges.
